    Jenn Bennett is one of my favorite authors ever, so when I saw she was doing a YA fantasy I was so excited I love seeing authors write different genres even though her YA contemporaries are a amazing Theo was awesome She was strong, emotional, challenging, and admitted when she was right or wrong Huck was the perfect sidekick swoony, sweet, protective, funny Their bickering was the best The world building was great and we get to explore such places as Turkey and Romania And there is quite Jenn Bennett is one of my favorite authors ever, so when I saw she was doing a YA fantasy I was so excited I love seeing authors write different genres even though her YA contemporaries are a amazing Theo was awesome She was strong, emotional, challenging, and admitted when she was right or wrong Huck was the perfect sidekick swoony, sweet, protective, funny Their bickering was the best The world building was great and we get to explore such places as Turkey and Romania And there is quite the chase that Theo and Huck have to take part in to escape people after them I will say that one of my favorite action scenes was the airplane one And the magic There was just so much awesomeness tangled up in this book, whether you are looking for contemporary, adventure, fantasy, romance it s all there I really loved this one

    I went into this not knowing what it was about I will absolutely read anything Jenn Bennett puts out I loved Theo and Huck She s smart and tired of being left behind He s charming and maybe a little uncertain Together they have a lifetime of history and a bit of a rocky future I loved reading them figure things out There are a few side characters who are delightful, but I won t get into detail on that Plot wise, it was a bit of a slow start for me Even though I was intrigued, I didn t g I went into this not knowing what it was about I will absolutely read anything Jenn Bennett puts out I loved Theo and Huck She s smart and tired of being left behind He s charming and maybe a little uncertain Together they have a lifetime of history and a bit of a rocky future I loved reading them figure things out There are a few side characters who are delightful, but I won t get into detail on that Plot wise, it was a bit of a slow start for me Even though I was intrigued, I didn t get captivated until they were really on the run I was loving all of the history and city descriptions and I don t know how much of the Vlad stuff was true, but it was interesting I will say that I wanted a bitfrom the ending The entire story was a build up to this one event and in a couple of pages, it was resolved and the story was over It felt rushed and that was sort of disappointing Overall, it was a unique to me story with characters who were easy to root for I can t wait to see what Jenn comes up with next Huge thanks to Simon Pulse for providing the arc free of charge

    I requested this book for one reason, really, and one reason only the name next to author I m a big fan of Bennett s contemporaries and I ve dabbled in her adult PNR series which I still have to finish so seeing her switch from YA contemporary to YA historical fantasy didn t concern me I was excited I might not have loved SERIOUS MOONLIGHT but I love her writing, her previous books, and had every reason to expect the same of this one.But nope.This book was a chore to read I pushed thr I requested this book for one reason, really, and one reason only the name next to author I m a big fan of Bennett s contemporaries and I ve dabbled in her adult PNR series which I still have to finish so seeing her switch from YA contemporary to YA historical fantasy didn t concern me I was excited I might not have loved SERIOUS MOONLIGHT but I love her writing, her previous books, and had every reason to expect the same of this one.But nope.This book was a chore to read I pushed through it quickly because the last thing I needed was another slump, and it wasn t too long, and I just kept waiting for the spark Or any spark, really I felt nothing for the characters who were, respectfully, spoiled and or sulky as well as overdoing the charm to the point of not being charming I felt nothing for the angst over the romance which we were beat over the head with to a ridiculous degree And honestly the Vlad the Impaler plot mystery that sent these two gallivanting all over Eastern Europe just. didn t really hook me and, like, did it ultimately even matter I m so confused I also want to say the pitch comparison to THE GENTLEMAN S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE definitely had me thinking this was queer And it is not.I didn t love the characters, the angst, the romance, the plot Even Bennett s writing, which I normally love, felt different and failed to entice If this hadn t been an ARC, I would ve DNF d If this was any other author, I would probably one star But I just can t bear to And I do think maybe this is a me problem Despite everything Anyway, I don t think this is a series, so I m relieved about that, but even if it was. I wouldn t be reading on I received an ARC from the publisher thank you in exchange for an honest review This review can also be found at A Take From Two Cities

    This was okay Nothing overly special here Felt a lot like Indiana Jones, but with a leading gal and an attractive boy sidekick her age The Dracula pieces of the story are not vampire like at all but instead focus on the actual Vlad Dracul, human, who did exist Good enough but nothing spectacular If you want to go on a treasure hunt you might find The Lady Rogue has something for you If you re hoping for blood, gothic overtones, and vampires this is NOT the book for you Those looking for This was okay Nothing overly special here Felt a lot like Indiana Jones, but with a leading gal and an attractive boy sidekick her age The Dracula pieces of the story are not vampire like at all but instead focus on the actual Vlad Dracul, human, who did exist Good enough but nothing spectacular If you want to go on a treasure hunt you might find The Lady Rogue has something for you If you re hoping for blood, gothic overtones, and vampires this is NOT the book for you Those looking for an intriguing mystery are also likely to be let down While there is a mystery here, and it should be the focus of the story, it s not that entrancing This isof a girl coming into her own teen book than anything The love story is meh as the chemistry between the characters is missing Overall this was a very disappointing read for me I would perhaps try another book by Jenn Bennett in the future There was enough here that with some good editing, focus on mystery writing, and a less snowflake like heroine I could see Bennett telling us some interesting stories Sadly The Lady Rogue isn t up to par especially in the high saturated teen fantasy genre Please note I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley This is an honest and unbiased review.

crowned jewel and the worlds nightmare Oh, you KNOW it s going to be good Theodora Fox is used to her father abandoning her in five star hotels around the world, while he slinks off to uncover hidden treasures and unearth rich history So when he disappears again, leaving her in yet another ritzy establishment in Istanbul, she is forced to stay behind with only her crossword puzzles and obsession for history to keep her company That is until Huxley Gallagher turns up in her hotel room, handing over her father s journal and claiming that he is missing What Theodora assumed was a typical expedition, turns swiftly into a hunt for her father and the truth behind his current hunt to find the long lost ring of Vlad the Impaler for a wealthy client Nobody said this adventure would be easy, especially when traveling with the boy who broke her heart and never spoke to her again But what Theodora is about to uncover will change her and her family s life forever This book kicks ass The lady Rogue is dripping in adventure, mystery, intrigue, wit and a TON of history The author has artistically woven historical events with fantastical elements to bring a legendary story fit for any thrill seeker Perfect for fans of Tomb Raider, National Treasure, Count Dracula, the Occult, dragons, fantasyand, really everything This book is PHENOMENAL.Set in the late 1930 s, this historical fantasy takes main characters Theodora and Huck to Romania in search of Theo s missing father who is chasing after a much sought after ring The only clues of his whereabouts come from Huck, her father s protege and a young man that her father took in at a young age At an excavation in Hungary, Huck and Theo s father, Fox, uncover a metal box with strange symbols encasing it that warned of the dangers kept inside What they hoped was the resting place of Vlad s long lost ring, turned out to be an empty box Dismayed, they travel back to their hotel, where Fox suddenly disappears, leaving behind strict instructions for Huck to find Theo in Istanbul, where he is to give her Fox s travel journal, and escape to Hudson Valley And so begins the WILD adventure that Theo and Huck embark on in search of Fox and Vlad s infamous ring While the two travel to Romania, Fox s last known whereabouts, they are chased by dangerous men hellbent on taking them out.And I don t mean for dinner and a movie I m talking murder, ladies and gents Because this book is PACKED with action These characters are CONSTANTLY tiptoeing the lines of death and swing dancing with fate Both Theo and Huck are talented treasure hunters with extensive experience and passion for what they were raised around, and it shows Theo is obsessed with history and any ancient topic that might involve a haunting or some form of magical element She is proficient in multiple languages, has an uncanny ability to decipher codes, and above all elsethis girl is witty as hell Her sharp comments and sarcastic remarks had me nodding my approval during my entire read She s a saucy little minx who curses, throws obscene gestures in the air and has an epic drunken outburst where she dubs herself Lady Rogue a lady of independent and royal standing Huck is also quite sarcastic and playful, but has a different set of skills and hates anything to do with spirits and magic He is a pilot, a great lock picker, and oh yeahTheo s ex Once inseparable best friends as children and teens who began to have feelings for each other, now we meet them at a time when they haven t spoken in over a year due to events that later become revealed This is the obvious romance of the story, but DON T WORRY This isn t one of those books that has a killer premise and then becomes overshadowed by mushy teen love This book focuses SOLELY on the premise, and you will be so incredibly thankful for it Because it is spectacular, exciting and downright addicting The author did an outstanding job implementing actual historical events and facts into the story, which in turn lead me to researching different historical figures so I could learnabout them There are countless elements that make up this gripping tale, and there is a little something in there for every type of reader But I think what really struck me while reading, was Jenn Bennet s uncanny ability to create a flawless book It is detailed, well constructed, comical, suspenseful and a TON of fun The book ends with everything wrapped up nice and tight, no cliffhangers in sight BUT I am curious if Jenn plans on writing a sequel, because how everything is left, she definitely set it up to be a possibility If so, you know I am going to be at the front of that line demanding a copy And I ll just leave on this note

    My thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.I love Jenn Bennett she has such a huge imagination, and I love her quirky writing style She tends to have a little gimmick for each story in this one, her use of word clues in various crossword puzzles was such fun This is young adult borderline new adult novel delves into the Occult and is set in 1938 I tend not to do paranormal, but for a chance to read a new Jenn Bennett, My thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.I love Jenn Bennett she has such a huge imagination, and I love her quirky writing style She tends to have a little gimmick for each story in this one, her use of word clues in various crossword puzzles was such fun This is young adult borderline new adult novel delves into the Occult and is set in 1938 I tend not to do paranormal, but for a chance to read a new Jenn Bennett, fresh off the presses, I will definitely go there Theodora Fox and Huxley Gallagher aka Theo and Huck are star crossed lovers, who meet again quite unexpectedly in Istanbul Theo s father, Richard, Fox was an amateur Gentleman Adventurer and he and young Huxley would go off on wild, hair raising adventures, always leaving Theodora safely behind in one hotel or another much to her aggrieved chagrin This time Theodora was left kicking her heels with her hired female companion in Istanbul while Fox went off chasing an enchanted ring that may have belonged to the Dracula family, and which may possess supernatural powers The sudden arrival of Huck at her hotel bodes ill just the previous year, Huck had been sent back to Ireland when Theo and Huck were caught in flagrante delicto in her bedroom, doing what teenagers often will do No spoiler alerts here Richard Fox had taken Huxley in and raised him along with Theo when Huxley s Irish immigrant parents were killed in a streetcar accident But when friendship blossomed into attraction between the young teens, Theo s father accused Huxley of betraying his trust and packed him off to Huxley s aunt in Ireland, separating the young lovers.Huxley and Theo are still secretly pining for one another. Theo is upset with Huck because he never responded to any of her letters unsolved mystery there and Huxley was told by Richard that Theo has moved on and is dating other eligible young men Well, the story heats up with non stop action the young lovers hardly have time to sort out their personal affairs, they are so busy running away from the deadly band of men who are also looking for the enchanted ring I loved the descriptions of all the countries Theo and Huck traveled through Istanbul, Bulgaria, Romania, and finally, Transylvania And yes, we do get to go inside an ancient haunted castle and experience magic at its deadliest I sensed a sequel in the making there are a few unresolved matters, and Jenn Bennett does tend to serialize her paranormal adventure novels I really enjoyed this fast paced read the story is action packed and the rekindled romance between Theo and Huck was too sweet for words I look forward tostories involving Theo, Huxley and Richard Highly recommended
